Last entry for the weekend

I read this gripping story. It's about a person who fakes entire personalities over the Internet, sucking people into her web. And it has Harlan Ellison in it! Bonus!

There's a harrowing passage from this article that reminds me of fights I have had, and the wisdom I eventually gained.
She starts packing. Will — Tania’s boyfriend — is quivering with rage. He’s young, and doesn’t understand yet how random, insane and chaotic the universe is. He still lives in a world where answers will be provided if you demand them.

“What the fuck is wrong with you, bitch?” he yells. “What the fuck were you thinking?”

She looks up at him with her cow eyes and shakes her head.

“I don’t have to explain myself to you.”

I pat him on the shoulder. He’s never going to get the answers he wants.
How sadly true this is.
